Imphal: BJP on Thursday urged the chief electoral
officer (CEO) in Manipur for setting up election control room,
particularly in Thoubal assembly constituency, where
their candidate Oinam Indira is pitted against Chief Minister
O Ibobi Singh.

A party spokesman told mediapersons here that they had
submitted a letter to the CEO demanding special measures like
setting up of control rooms which will function round-

Thoubal candidate.

Reports from Thoubal district said a meeting of Oinam
Indira was allegedly disrupted by supporters of other
candidates a few weeks ago.
